We recently had the opportunity to collaborate with Electrolux, a Swedish multinational brand on a HTML5 quiz game. The marketing objective of the game was connect a music festival with a strong consumer brand.

Using HTML5 was a no-brainer, as it allowed us to easily distribute the game to a large audience, without being subject to App Store approval times. Later in this post, we'll describe why we chose HTML5.
The game concept is simple: given a lyric and corresponding audio clip, guess the song artist. Correct guesses would be awarded points, while wrong guesses would lead to points deduction. Users would be able to compete for the top score via a Facebook-powered leaderboard.
On the technical side, we have a large database song data and clips at a time, 10 of which are presented to the user every round of gameplay. The game client would request the metadata and audio clip from 10 randomly selected songs. With some help from the localStorage element, we could ensure that the songs presented are always fresh. We even had a team to update song data every few days, while the marketing campaign was running.
Speed of loading the audio clip was crucial, as it added to the experience of the game. 5-second, highly compressed audio clips was the solution to this.
The UI was presented in a clean fashion. The text lyric is shown in the middle. The audio clip button is visible in the top right, with the pre-loaded clip ready to fire. Upon selecting an answer, the "next" button would appear, acting as a final confirmation button.
Here are a few screenshots:

The game was distributed via social media and news channels, recording over 177,660 completed gameplays within 72 hours of going live. Most importantly, it solidified a regional music festival with a multinational consumer brand. It's proof that HTML5 can be used to create interactive and engaging experiences, to benefit both users and brands.
Why did we choose HTML5?
We believe the advantages of HTML5 would continue to drive brand adoption, enabling users to quickly engage with their favorite brands.
